Tired of being on the hold list and can't wait any longer to see that new release film? Then join us at the library for a movie night. Set in a futuristic dystopia, where society is divided into five factions that each represent a different virtue, teenagers have to decide if they want to stay in their faction or switch to another - for the rest of their lives. Tris Prior has an important choice to make but she has a secret that should anyone find out, it would mean a certain death. This film is rated PG-13. Please call the library at 827-6940 for movie title. We'll have plenty of snacks, courtesy of the Friends of the Main Library St. Augustine.
